  2. Picked up a new Grand Cherokee L Thursday and Already been in Service twice.

    eh, the air ride seems to be a common failure on the Ram's. Think I'd pass. I am waiting to see the regular GC rollout. Good luck OP with your issues.
  3. Rivian R1T First Drive reviews

    Looks like inboard it is.
  4. Rivian R1T First Drive reviews

    I would hope it's not a motor in every wheel. That seems like it would be a lot of sprung weight on the wheel. Seems like mounting it inboard and driving a shaft woold be better for chassis dynamics. Maybe that's what it is. I don't know.
  5. 2022 Rumors?

    Why didn't they tout these specs in the video??!! Except for the mpge spec. I didn't hear any of this.
  6. 2022 Rumors?

    Well that was lame. No info on the powertrain specifics.
  7. Jericho mountain 4x4 trail

    I believe Jericho mountain park requires you have a winch. Someone correct me if I'm wrong here.

  9. Jeep Wave Program Won't Rotate "Oversized" Tires (35ers)

    Try installing tires on a BMW or my Supra. They have lug bolts, not nuts. So when you install the tires there's literally nothing to align the tires to the threaded HOLES on the rotor! Stupid design. They do make a threaded alignment stud you can buy ( huh, kinda like a stud) and install into...
  10. Bronco is fullsize - no comparison

    I had my Subaru for 8 years and it never leaked or suffered from wind noise. Perhaps you keep your cars longer and can speak to further out time frames better than I. That said I never take a pressure washer to my cars. Not sure why folks do. I mean I wouldn't expect a car to seal completely...
  11. Bronco is fullsize - no comparison

    Agreed, I like frameless doors. Had them on a Subaru and now on my Supra. I don't see the need to have the extra metal on the door and they are just as quiet as a full framed door. Doors are much lighter.
  12. Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) Introduces New Half Doors For Gladiator (as Part of Dual-Door Group)

    5K, pffft. Thanks Jeep. Another pitiful overpriced money grab.
  13. Powerstation to use with bed outlet (Jackery, etc)

    Where is the Ecoflow made?
  14. Overlanding fridge/freezer set up

    Bought an Engel MR040. Super quiet, sipped energy and surprisingly 40 qt capacity was pretty decent for like 3 or 4 people for a while. I powered it with a Jackery 550. It wold run the fridge for 2 days with a 100% charge on it. Plus: made in Thailand, not China. Loved it but returned it...
  15. Is the OE filter housing prone to failing?

    no, not problematic at all......all parts have like 8 revisions to them in like 6 years. Definitely not a sign of a deficient part. /sarcasm Hopefully the latest parts are robust enough to not have an issue anymore...and I must say I haven't read much in the way of failures lately.......soooooo.
  16. First REAL towing with the Gladiator Overland -- 4900 pounds tow load

    ^^ well I was thinking about the mileage I used to get towing my 28' sailboat (5.5K lbs) with my V8 Explorer. I got 10 - 11 MPG with that rig; but to be, fair there was a lot of windage/surface area with that boat.
  17. First REAL towing with the Gladiator Overland -- 4900 pounds tow load

    Woah, someone who took their trailer on a trip and came equipped to deal with trailer issues... impossible!! Nice trailer BTW. Quick suggestion to anyone towing long legs: bring a non contact infrared thermometer to check wheel bearing temps. when you stop. Great quick way to make sure a...
  18. Is it ok to leave the Selec-Trac Full Time 4WD System on?

    Good on you for reading and learning the features of your vehicle. You are already more knowledgeable than the dealer :like:
  19. Jeep: give us a new power plant!

    Impossible. Everyone knows the Tacoma is the bestest!! :computerrage: Funny, I was visiting a good friend this past week and he was recounting his adventures with his Tundra. He had to have his entire frame replaced and a bunch or brake lines, rotors , etc because they were rotten. Unbelievable.
